It's still 'flu season!

Australia is just coming out of its winter and has seen a significant increase in the number of patients with flu - 200,000 cases and more then 100 deaths. The impact of flu on Australia is an accurate indicator of what we might expect during our winter.

The flu vaccination can help protect you and you may be entitled to have it. We still have plenty in stock so if you are over 65, pregnant or in an 'at risk' group, please book an appointment. You can call us on 023 92583302. Please ensure you have your 'flu vaccination at the Medical Centre. Doing so means that a record of your vaccination is put on your medical record, we can check that you are well and we are doing everything possible for your health.

Medical Research Data Collection

The staff at this practice record information about you and your health so that you can receive the right care and treatment.  We need to record this information, together with the details of the care you receive, so that itisi available each time we see you.

The information recorded about you may be used for reasons other than your personal care, for example, to help to protect the health of the general public, to plan for the future, to train staff and carry out medical and other health research.

We are involved in research studies which require access to anonymous information from patients' notes.  You cannot be identified from these notes as all personal details (name, address, post code, date of birth) are removed.  Individual patients' records are added into a much larger anonymous database from many patients across the UK which is used by researchers outside this practice.  This data may be anonymously linked to other data, such as hospital data.

If you would like to opt out of this data collection scheme, please let your doctor know and your records will not be collected for use in the anonymous research database.  This will not affect your care in any way.

If anything to do with the research would require that you provide additional information about yourself, you will be contacted by your GP to see if you are willing to take part; you will not be identified in any published results.

You have a right of access to your health records.  If at any time you would like to know more, or have any concerns about how we use your information, please ask reception for more details.
